Event Overview:

Chromatography is a key analytical technique in the food industry and enables quantification of major, minor, and trace concentrated food constituents in complex mixtures. In the brewing sector Hop bitter acids, phenols, anions, acids, and carbohydrates are typical substance classes that are of interest to the analyst. Quality control (QC) methods commonly rely on simple instrumentation, such as high performance liquid chromatography with ultra-violet detection ( HPLC–UV,) and target a handful of key analytes. In contrast, methods employed in research can be very sophisticated and make use of the latest analytical equipment offered. This webinar reviews the LC methods currently used in brewing and highlights assays that are unique to this industry and discusses which LC assays currently used in research might add benefit to future brewing QC methods.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about the importance of liquid chromatography (LC) as an analysis technique in the brewing industry.
  • Find out about the liquid chromatography (LC) methods that are used in quality control (QC) laboratories to analyse beer.
  • Find out about the innovative liquid chromatography (LC)) techniques used in research laboratories to analyse beer.
  • Learn about the latest advanced LC techniques used to analyze beer.
